Install Traps Components Using Windows Msiexec
As an alternative to using the Windows installers, you can use Windows Msiexec to install the ESM Server and ESM Console on Windows servers, and the Traps agent on Windows endpoints. Msiexec provides full control over the installation process and allows you to install, modify, and perform operations on a Windows Installer from the command line interface (CLI). You can also use MSIXEC to log any issues encountered during installation.
Additionally, to install Traps on multiple endpoints for the first time, you can use Msiexec in conjunction with a System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM), Altiris, Group Policy Object (GPO), or other MSI deployment software. After successfully installing Traps on an endpoint and establishing an initial connection with the ESM Server, you can upgrade or uninstall Traps from one or more endpoints by creating an action rule (see Uninstall or Upgrade Traps on the Endpoint ).
Before installing Traps, verify that the system meets the requirements described in Traps Software Requirements .
